If the American President Breaks the Law, How Does Impeachment Actually Work?

So much proverbial shit has hit the fan in Washington in recent days that the word ‘impeachment’ has entered the conversation in a real (or less typically hysterical) way. But is the removal of the President by Congressional writ a real possibility? The NPR show Ron’s Office Hours breaks down the history of the fascinating mechanism and how it works.

Ron Elving explains the procedure by which the House of Representative and the U.S. Senate impeach a sitting president. He also looks at the history of impeachment proceedings, beginning with former President John Tyler in the 1840s and leading up to the House impeachment of former President Bill Clinton in 1998. And Ron breaks down how this relates to President Trump, who has already been the subject of two impeachment resolutions brought by House Democrats.
